These photos, taken today, show the extent of the rot on the west gables of the library which have so far gone unprepared by the Council's Properties department. In this picture you can see that the top board has completely rotted away and the bargeboard has started to rot at the lower end.
The adjacent gable has also lost its top board, and in the next photo you can see that the decorative moulding has started to detach from the barge board. A missing ridge tile is also visible just above the gable.
Your committee have raised these issues several times with the libraries management, but so far they have been unable to elicit any response from Properties.
